♪ it's "jimmy kimmel live" sngz ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: hi, everyone. thank you very much. that's very nice. i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. and i thank you for watching and for coming out to visit. hope everybody's okay. everybody all right? everybody feeling okay tonight? [ cheers and applause ] i had an unusual thing happen to me last night. i went home last night and all the lights in my house were out. it was completely dark. so naturally, i assumed surprise party. [ laughter ] right? i mean -- which would be weird, because my birthday is in november, but -- [ laughter ] but if you really want to surprise someone, six months early is the way to go about it. but i went in the house and nobody jumped out, so i knew it wasn't that. and then i did, so, even though you know the power is out, you continuously try to flip the
lights on. every ten steps, i was like, oh, yeah. maybe i'll watch tv, oh, yeah. i have the attention span of a kitten. it's unbelievable. so i go around flipping all the lights on for no reason. nothing happens. i switched the radio on. then of course when the power did finally come back on at 3:00 a.m., it was like las vegas on new year's eve. it was terrifying. [ laughter ] so -- anyway, this does not give me a lot of confidence of having my held frozen after i die. i'm rethinking that. you know, the olympic torch is making its way to london for the start of the summer games at the end of july. will.i.am of the black eyed peas was asked to participate and that's a big deal, being asked to run the torch. it's an honor. when you watch the interview, you can really see how touched he was to have been asked to do this. >> something that you only saw on tv growing up. and -- so, to be here today in the uk, you know, with all the
hard work that it took me to get to this level, to be able to do that, following and pursuing my dreams and, you know, and now i'm here and i'm running the torch. it's great. >> jimmy: he's texting. he's on his phone while running with the olympic torch. those words with friends aren't going to spell themselves. so nicely done. that would be a fun one on explain to the people of ancient greece. some interesting news from marvel comics. they've announced their first openly gay super hero, a character called north star, is getting married. he's marry his long-time boyfriend in issue 51. north star and kyle sounds like a crappy band that your co-worker keys trying to get you to like on facebook. mitt romney came out against this today, saying he believes
that marriage is a sacred bond between one superman and one wonder woman. apparently this is a bit of a trend. d.c. comics announced this week that one of their major superheroes, an existing one, is going to come out of the closet next month. they haven't said which one. let's see if we can guess. now, batman and robin -- too obvious. who else do we have here? superman. he does come out of closets a lot. phone booths mostly. and he also wears retro glasses even though he doesn't need them to see, for no reason. so, he is a -- we'll keep an eye on him. the flash could definite litt little -- his nickname is the scarlet spee accessor rises, as you can see there. captain marvel, it's hard to imagine a straight man yelling the word shazam. [ laughter ] the green lantern, his name already sounds like a gay bar. so he could be.
and finally aquaman, a lot of people have been saying they think it's going to be him. i don't think it is. no gay man i know would ever be caught dead in an outfit like that. no way. gay superheroes have been getting a lot of attention lately. but it never turns out to be one of the big characters. probably turn out to be one of the wonder twins. so why not accelerate the process of bringing gay heroes into the main stream, using television. so, we took a justice league cartoon and we combined it with audio from an episode of "project runway" and i think this is just the kind of launching pad we need. >> i'm checking in with joshua, who is also in new york. joshua. >> hi, tim. >> how are you feeling about the collection? >> i am working on, you know, the most important collection of my life. i happen to come across this really great fabric they found. >> is it vintage? >> yeah, it is. >> can i be blunt? >> yeah. >> i think it's looking like a
gimmick. >> the minute you put it on? >> it's over. it's on the edge of looking cheap. you think about ice cream? >> i do like a good sherbert. >> where's the sex you always exude? this looks like farmer and the dell. >> okay. >> make it work. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i don't think so. as you probably know, snooki from the show "jersey shore" is pregnant. did you know that? shame on all of you. [ laughter ] she just found out what she's having. she's having a gerbil. [ laughter ] she's giving birth to a very tan baby gerbil. actually, she's having a tiny little juicehead gorilla boy. snooki originally said she was hoping to have a girl, or if not a girl, one of those watermelons filled with tequila.
but happy to be having a boy. some day in the not too distant future, a young man is going to bring a young woman to his home and he'll be forced to say, "this is my mom, snooki." oh, wait. tonight we witnessed the season finale of "american idol," and when all the votes were counted, after 19 weeks of competition, our new "american idol" is colin crystal, wins "american idol" tonight. congratulations. you guys fans of colin? i just made that name up. there's no colin crystal. i have no idea who won. i don't watch. [ laughter ] they -- [ applause ] they really -- thanks to colin and -- they really packed the show tonight. i saw a promo with 20 guest singers listed, gloria gaynor, nelly furtado, and scotty mccreery. it was like a mix tape from an ex-girlfriend who always hated you. but i'm happy to report that
at long last, "american idol" is done for another season. randy jackson will get back to his dance crew. jennifer lopez will go back to making, i don't know, three commercials a day. and steven tyler returns to his day job as a mannequin at chico's in the westfield mall. [ laughter ] there's -- [ applause ] there's -- hard to believe, but there's been another new development in the secret service prostitution scandal. four of the eight agents who were let go are now trying to have their dismissals overturned. they claimed they're being used as scapegoats because there's an unwritten code that says you can get drunk and have sex with random women in over countries as long as the relationship ends once you leave. they say, this kind of thing is so common, seriously, that internally, they refer to it as the secret circus. which explains why they were trying to pay the hookers, pea nuts, i think. just because you're pitching a tent doesn't make it a circus. [ cheers and applause ] unfortunately the scandal is
expanding. now several dea agents, it's a whole other thing, are being scrutinized for allegedly soliciting prostitutes in cartagena. this is turning into some kind of "50 shades of gray for men" now. here's what it comes down to for me. if you want to have one-night stands or hire a bunch of hookers, fine. just don't sign up to protect our politicians. if that's the thing you want to do, become one of our politicians. [ laughter ] thank you. [ applause ] meanwhile, in the less glamorous world of airport security, starting in july, the three major airports in new york will feature life-size holograms that can interact, answer questions for you and tell you where you need to go. which means we are one step closer to the day when no one has a job. what's the end game here? we all just sit around on the couch watching the kardashians? the hologram is a female named ava. she automatically appears on a sheet of glass when someone
approaches. it's amazing. look at this. >> i'm so versatile. i can be used for just about anything. i can say what you want, dress the way you want, and be just about anything you want me to be. >> jimmy: okay, how is this not a sex robot? [ laughter ] what has happened to our priorities? say what you want, dress -- be used for anything? if i was 15 years old, i don't think i'd be able to control -- i'd probably attack it. that's not what you need in the airport in new york. in new york, they should have something more like this. >> excuse me. could you tell me where the delta ticket counter is, please? >> what do i look like, a [ bleep ]? look at the sign, lay zy [ bleep ]. >> screw you. >> next? >> jimmy: and one more thing. you know, every so often on the show, we send my cousin sal out
into the wild to do what he does best, which is bother unsuspecting people. we sent him to costco in burbank. you know, costkro hco has a ver liberal return policy. if something is wrong, they'll fix it, unless of course the guy working the return counter happens to be my cousin sal. ♪ >> can i help you, sir? >> how you doing? you're returning it? okay. what's wrong with it? >> i didn't open it. >> so here's the thing with our new return policy. with electronics, you kind of have to break it. it has to be broken before you return it. yeah. so, then anyone comes here, oh, my wife bought me one. it gets stupid after awhile, you know? i got a pony tail and i want my money. we don't want to have to deal with that. >> you want me to break this? >> i need to you break it.
hold on, i'll help you out a little. here. just be cool. just smash the crap out of it. don't make any noise. >> i'm not going to break this. >> come on, steven seagal. put some muscles into it. >> then you're going to say that i broke it. >> i'm not going to say anything. >> i'm trying to help you out. >> i'm not going to sit here with a hammer and break it. >> how about this? i'm going to close my eyes and i'll put my hand on your hand and we'll smash it together, so technically it will be -- >> you want to do that? >> yeah. >> okay. one, two -- it needs to be firmer. all right? [ banging ] got to hand it to the chinese. this is pretty indestructible. >> oh, okay, we're using the wrong side. >> you good?
>> what's going on? are you destroying our products here? >> he's lying, dude. take him away. >> can you come over here? >> great. >> sir, i'll take you right here. hey, what's happening? >> too big. and they ended up having one already. so i'm just returning. >> oh, man, i cannot deal with this right now. cannot deal with this right now. >> excuse me, why are you doing that? >> i so, so cannot deal with this right now. that's pretty good. >> that's your problem, number one. you're drinking in front of customers. and number two, you grab my stuff and throw it on the floor. >> when did you do that? >> you just did that. is your manage over here so i
can let him know how you're being right now? >> this is not a laundromat. you're bringing your clothes. >> who said it was a laundromat in the first place. >> when you dropped it off, you said no starch. >> i didn't say [ bleep ] -- who is your manager? >> you just did say [ bleep ], i heard it. >> can somebody help me over here? >> can pick that up? >> i'm not picking it up. >> if someone trips on it, we have a problem. >> that's your problem. you're the one who threw this there. i put it right here and told you the reasons why i was returning it. you grabbed it -- >> calm down. you are acting hysterical right now. >> you're drinking alcohol in front of me on the job. >> that's a really good idea. i'm glad you said that. thank you. mm-mm. woo! >> jimmy: thank you, sal. you're not supposed to -- hey, we have a good show for you tonight. bethenny frankel is here, we have music from kimbra, and we'll be right back with josh

>> no, no, no, no facial hair team. >> jimmy: really? >> no, no. i like to groom. grooming is good. you know, like when i was doing "wall street," mani-pedis, i thought it was like a billionaire mentality thing to do. not really cool where i'm from, the country and cowboy thing. but now i don't do the manis anymore, very obviously, but the pedis, i still do, bro. >> jimmy: you do? how often do you pedi? [ applause ] >> i'm going with all these girls to get pedis after the show. [ cheers and applause ] >> no, seriously. >> jimmy: how often? >> every hour, hour and a half. um -- [ laughter ] you know, after "men and black 3" i got me sot cash and i got me a traveling pediist. no, no, no, where i'm from, the
country, you do your nails. see, my legs are too freaking short. but guys do it, they sit and watch tv and eat their nails off their foot. it's not cool. so secretly they think i'm watching tv shows and eating my feet. but i thought it was better to just get a $30 cool santa monica boulevard -- well, not that side, but the other side of santa monica boulevard, cool either side, but whatever -- >> get it for free on this side. >> be there. >> jimmy: and you go in and they recognize you and -- you have a special, like, person you go to regularly? >> yeah, they -- do they recognize me as an actor? i'm like the goatee guy. scary josh is coming in. get ready. give him a deal. 25 bucks, 23 bucks sometimes. but, yeah, man, next time we do the show, we should do like a pedi thing. [ applause ] >> jimmy: all right. i've never had that before. >> we should do it. >> jimmy: i did have a manicure before. >> so, how was "men in black 3"?
it was really wonderful. it was great. >> jimmy: then can we wear those -- >> i don't like the shiny stuff, though. because you put the cowboy boots on, it feels so good in the cowboy boots, there's no catching, no ripping. >> jimmy: you wouldn't want something like that. >> no, of course not. >> jimmy: maybe eyebrow shaping, too. >> that's great. a lot of other things i could think of doing, too. >> jimmy: you've been traveling all over the world. >> i have. >> jimmy: promoting this movie. >> i have. we've been to, god, london, berlin, we broke the world record for premiere attendance in berlin. 7,000 people at the o2 stadium. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: wow. >> we've been to spain. we've been to korea, japan, moscow, we've been everywhere, in the last 12 days. i feel like i'm on acid right now. >> jimmy: what's moscow like? what is that like? do they have kgb agents following you around? >> they do. i actually saw the kgb building -- i mean, that's cool,
m-6 in london, rcia, you see the kgb build, before the cold war and all that. when i'm there, not that it's needed, but i have security detail. it's just a thing. will smith needs security detail. me, it looks kind of dumb by myself. with security detail, but the guys -- how do i do this, literally, the guys, here, let me get over here. >> jimmy: oh, all right. >> the guys stand, i got about an hour and a half off and the guy stands that close to me. >> jimmy: why? >> i don't know. so go ahead do your show and interview and see how uncomfortable it is. >> jimmy: why is he doing it? >> it is some condition where people like to rub against other people. i think he had that condition. the last time we did this, i was with matt lauer in red square, he's doing a live show and i'm in every shot. i was like, [ bleep ], no kidding, because you this guy who is doing this thing, rubbing. stand back. i don't need it. he's doing this protection
thing, but really he's just rubbing on me. it was really creepy. it was creepy. >> jimmy: i hope you and he stayed friends. >> i loved russia, but the dude was creepy. >> jimmy: are you sure he worked for you? maybe he was just a fan. >> that is true. maybe just a fan. >> jimmy: you brought some photographs. >> my one fan. >> jimmy: i think you need to explain the story of this before we show them. >> you have a buddy and i have a buddy, john krasinski. he's a friend, right? >>. >> jimmy: yep. >> i think he's the greatest, the best. but we have the same publicist, liz mahoney. our publicists, she just likes me better. [ laughter ] so john gets to, kind of, like, hey, liz, what are you doing with josh? oh, my god, we had the greatest time. we went here. we went here. so then i started sending him pictures. so, the first picture, that's liz. >> jimmy: yes, lovely, by the way. >> thank you for saying so. not that she's my -- anyway, so, she's wonderful.
this is publicist of john brolin and john krasinski, but loves josh brolin more. >> jimmy: okay. >> this one -- this is liz and josh on the plane to europe, having a frigging blast. >> jimmy: yeah. like ultra first class. >> this one is john krasinski -- this is john's response and trying to be a good sport about everything, but obviously sending a message, a very clear message. >> jimmy: he's not in first class. >> this one is liz and myself in rio, having again, a great time. but we would say to krasinski, we're not having a great time. so this is liz and i in cancun, not having a great time. and this is his response. >> jimmy: yeah, he's in pittsburgh. >> so now it's getting angry at this point. so now liz and i in paris, liz and i at in germany. now we have liz and i in london,

>> all right. >> jimmy: josh brolin in "men in black 3." it opens on friday. that image, for those who don't know and probably most people don't know, will smith's character goes back in time and you play a younger version of tommy lee jones' character. agent k. and you do a dead-on impersonation of tommy lee jones. it is unbelievable. were you studying him? for years? how does that happen? >> no, i mean, like johnny depp doing hunter thompson, he hung out with him 24/7 for three months. tommy lee jones is not the kind of guy, you want to sleep in the same room for three months? he's a little tougher than that, i guess. no, i studied. i watched movies. >> jimmy: when did you meet? >> i met him in santa fe. i've done three movies with hip. we have never done a scene together. >> jimmy: wow.
>> so, the first time -- i always looked up to him, all the great roles he's done, amazing actor. so i was sitting in a bar with barry corbin in santa fe hotel. then, tommy waddles up, does this whole thing, doesn't look at me, talks to barry, literally for 15 minutes without looking at me. i said, i'm sorry to interrupt, mr. jones, my name is josh brolin. and he looked at me -- "okay." i aid, "i'm here, i'm going to play li--" and he looks at me f the most long, awkward pose and he goes "all right." and i was like -- [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: have you done imitations for him? >> never, no, we did a read-through and i refused to do it in front of him. so, they did two separate. one, the first act and then the second, third act, i did later because, you know -- you don't want to get it wrong, man.
he hasn't come up to me. i heard he came up to barry and will, said some really nice things about the movie. but i'm not going to go, what did you think about me playing you, playing k as a young guy -- like, how cool is that? you know? i love acting. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: that's a great impersonation. it's a weird -- what did you do last time you were here? you did an impersonation of john malkovich. and that was a great -- do you do a lot of people? >> you got to go out to a bar and have a couple of drinks. i mean, that's how -- i bet barry sonnenfelt -- >> dire >> jimmy: director of the movie. >> i gave the coene brothers an award. it was funny. and then barry was like, oh, my god, i want to meet him. that's really how he found me. that's not an exaggeration. we went out, had a couple of drinks. we started doing nick nolte and tommy lee jones and all that. little do you know, you're going to get a call three years later, going, hey, you know that
impression that you do? like, what about doing it for millions around the planet? i'm like, that doesn't really sound cool to me, you know? because you never know how a movie is going to turn out. >> jimmy: the movie came out great. don't you think? >> i do, do i. you do a movie like "no country for old men," i remember we're halfway through the movie, between takes, mellow time. ethan coen comes up to me, he goes, this movie is never going to work. nobody's going to see it. and walks away. i'm like, dude, we're not even done with the movie. [ laughter ] finish the movie first and see it and then make a judgment. then to spite him, it wins best picture. >> jimmy: of course. that's the way to go. great to see you. thank you so much for coming. go see "men in black 3." it opens friday. josh brolin, everybody. we'll be right back with bethenny frankel. we're here at walmart with the burtons,

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: how are you? >> i'm great. thank you for having me. >> jimmy: it's great to have you here. you have an interesting story. when you started on reality television, you were broke, like most people on reality television. >> right. >> jimmy: but unlike most people on reality television, you somehow parlayed that into a multimillion-dollar business. >> it is interesting.
i decided to do reality television because i had a business i wanted to promote. and it was touch and go. i turned the show down and then i thought, it's difficult to get on the air and i do have a platform. and i was at an event in the hamptons. i was approached and they asked me to be on the show. i didn't have children and wasn't married. didn't even have a good relationship. and i accepted and i kind of just, you know, took my top off from there on in. i mean, i just showed it all and i was honest and developed a real relationship with women, because i was honest about being broke. about not knowing, you know, how to pay my rent, not knowing if there was going to be a guy, if i was going to have children. not cute anymore in your 30s going to the club and trying to find mr. right and even mr. right now is not easy at that point. then i came up with, i like the cocktail, i always have. and i wanted to not feel guilty
about having a margarita. so, i started ordering skinny girl margaritas. i thought that was a great name. >> jimmy: that's a great to have invented your own cocktail. i don't think shirley temple invented hers. like, tom collins -- >> and she doesn't make any money off hers. >> jimmy: yeah, the arnold palmer. he probably had nothing to do with it. how do you wind up turning this into a real business? >> well, you know, every woman doesn't want to feel guilty about having a cocktail. it was a margarita. now it's 13 different cocktails and we just came out with the new drink like a lady campaign. it's the fastest growing liquor brand, period. >> jimmy: i have to say, for me, i can't imagine anything more embarrassing than me ordering a skinny-girl margarita. >> a lot of guys drink it and mix it with beer, a lot of guys do that. >> jimmy: at that point, why even bother, though. >> that's true. but it's cool to go into a bar. i can bring my own booze places. because they're not going to turn me down. i invented it. let me -- i'm getting high on my
own supply, guy. >> jimmy: you can carry your own liquor into any place you want to go? >> i mean, it's not like carrying a seeing eye dog on an airplane, but i kind of -- i do it. >> jimmy: like snoop dogg is allowed to be high wherever he goes. >> right. celebrities always would have, publicist publicists saying, put that away. and i'm like, hi, babies through college. >> jimmy: now people are not allowed to smoke. >> exactly. >> jimmy: you starred in the martha stewart apprentice. >> right. it wasn't celebrity apprentice. it was, you know -- >> jimmy: right. real housewives, obviously. skating with the stars, you were on. >> that one really jumps off the page, doesn't it? >> jimmy: literally. i mean -- how did you do on that show? >> i was a finalist, and there was someone got really ill. people were dying, getting hurt. i wanted to just get past the first week. and then i was like, get me the hell off this frig frigging show. it was terrifying. and i went the entire way.
>> jimmy: you got married on "bethenny getting married" and "bethenny ever after." >> jimmy: if you keep with the margaritas, your next will be celebrity rehab. [ cheers and applause ] >> exactly. >> jimmy: you are launching a new talk show. everyone has a talk show but your talk show is being produced by ellen degeneres. >> i know. it is nice to have a stamp of ellen. >> jimmy: it sure is. >> she's never done it before. and it's going to be very different on her show. and she keeps it clean. i have a mouth for nighttime and i'm very comfortable here with you guys, you know? so, it will be interesting doing daytime and just riding the line. i'm going to cross the line. see how far we can go. >> jimmy: will you have celebrity guests? >> there will be celebrities, but it's not about how big the celebrity is, why i want to have them on the show. it's that they have something interesting to talk about based on the topic. i want to talk about sex, money and relationships.
i want to talk about, you know, women breastfeeding their toddlers, i want to talk about grooming, i mean, manscaping, male perspective on it. i want men to talk about, you know, how they're treating women and why. i want to get into it. >> jimmy: i got you. and this book, this is a novel, which means it is not true but it seems to be, like, the main character is you, right? >> it's definitely, you know, there's a lot of meaning in there. it's about a girl who tries to make it and what she has to sacrifice and the compromising position and is it worth it? >> jimmy: there's a character in the book named sibil hunter. >> yes. >> this is based on martha stewart. >> maybe. i mean, you actually do read, don't you? >> jimmy: no, no, somebody told me about it. >> i was going to say, wow. >> jimmy: somebody told me that it is clearly based on martha stewart. are you worried about that? >> i don't worry. in the event that it were based on martha stewart, it's somewhat flattering in ways. >> jimmy: in ways? in what ways? i heard in not that many ways.
>> i have a lot of respect for martha. she's a woman who's never asked anyone to do anything that she's not done herself. she's gotten down and scrubbed the toilets. she built a brand. >> jimmy: she's been to prison too. >> she's been to prison and she's a tough woman. now as i become more successful, i realize -- now people don't always think you're so nice. it's just not going to happen. i was an assistant in hollywood years ago and i've done the nitty gritty. i've been the assistant. >> jimmy: who were you an assistant for? >> i was an assistant to jerry bruckheimer's wife. i don't know, he produced -- i was an assistant for paris hilton's mother. i used to wait in movie theater seats. >> jimmy: for her? >> for linda and jerry. they went to the movies back in the day -- back in my day, you couldn't buy the tickets ahead of time. i would zillionth there and wait and -- i was a seat filler. >> jimmy: that's insanity.
that's the craziest thing i've ever heard. >> no, what do you mean? you live in l.a. there's a lot of things i had to do. >> jimmy: you're going to have to come back and tell me the other ones. that's unbelievable. you sit in the seat and then the movie starts and you get up and leave? >> yeah, at century city, absolutely. i'm never going to be in one of jerry's movies now because of this show. >> jimmy: maybe you can go see one. [ laughter ] >> yes. >> jimmy: this is the book. it's called "skinnydipping." bethenny frankel, everybody. we'll be right back with music from kimbra.
